Surly every woman out there has noticed some of the double standards women face. Some men get promoted while a woman who works twice as hard and has twice the experience gets passed up for promotion. Anchor women get shoved aside for the newer better looking model while men stay on air until retirement.
This well written story has a old time movie feel to it. The private detective and a woman coming to him to seek proof of a cheating husband. The story differs from those movies in the way it ends. While we see things through Morris' eyes Diane the news anchor certainly stills the show throughout the story. Diane makes sure that we'll never forget her.
When a local television news anchor hires Waco, Texas private eye Morris Ronald Boyette to follow her husband, he thinks he's taking on a run-of-the-mill cheating-spouse case. Instead, he gets a harsh lesson in how aging unfairly impacts working women.
A work of short crime from our Fingerprints line.
